A peated single malt whisky from Ireland. Winner of numerous international plaudits - this truly is a great effort from distillers, Cooley.
Nose: Lemony and fresh. Quite light, oily peat which melds with a deft touch of light apple and pear, a hint of custard, and creamy malt.
Palate: Sweet, fizzy almost, with rustic, earthy peat, atop rhubarb and custard sweets, cream, malt and granary toast with melted butter. Smoky too, like a driftwood on fire.
Finish: Light finish, medium length, some vanilla and tangy fruit with traces of oily smoke and spice.
